Land Regulation Advisory Committee

This committee is an advisory committee consisting of two city council members, two county commissioners, and three citizens of Montgomery County doing business in development, home building, or real estate. The purpose of this committee is to review any text changes to the zoning codes or subdivision regulations before the RPC votes on them. This allows for a third-party, non-binding review of text only. These members are appointed to 2-year non-repeating terms by their respective mayors. Citizen members are jointly appointed. This committee will meet at least twice annually, and additionally as needed. In addition to the nominated members the two mayors, chairman of the RPC, and RPC director are ex-officio members on the committee.
